I didn't know quite what to expect, as Crowne Plaza hotels can have quite a large variance in their quality. This Crowne Plaza was top notch. Breakfast was very good. The Gym was slightly above average with a pretty good weight room, separate aerobic area with machines. The pool was also very nice, but it was a little too chilly to test it out.
The hotel is attached to a very exclusive mall, and there were several good restaurants available that weren't part of the hotel. Xiamen is not quite as spread out as other Chinese cities, so this location was actually quite amenable to visiting other parts of the city. It was usually a 15-25 minute taxi ride to any place in the city.
The rooms were way above average, especially for a Crowne Plaza. As I stated in my review of the Causeway Bay Hong Kong Crowne Plaza, this CP was actually very close to an Intercontinental service level. The service itself was exceptional. If I had to do business in Xiamen again, I would be back.
The internet access wasn't as fast as I would have liked, but it was very good.
